Default Micro-ATX C2Duo Mobo?

I'm looking to build a media center PC where it will mostly be used for the internet and office applications, but want it to be capable for gaming and video editing.

I'm going to start with a E6700 core 2 duo chip and wanted to know what the best micro-atx mobo for the money is? Thanks in advance for the help!

I have a DS3 myself, haven't overclocked it yet. It's not the best motherboard in terms of regular usage, but it has a lot of overclocking features. I bought it mainly because all the overclockers were getting it, and i plan on overclocking. I don't know a lot about the Asus p5b. So it depends on what your going to be using it for. What else are you looking for in a motherboard? What RAM do you play on using, are you going to SLli/xfire?
